Need to replace Upper Dishrack Wheel

Model KUDM01TJ, part #8268785. I don't know how to replace the upper dishrack wheel. At the end of each track there is a part which blocks the Upper Dishrack from being removed from the dishwasher. I don't know if that is supposed to be removed in order to install the new wheel. Any help is appreciated.

    I was able to view a video on Appliance Parts Pro demonstrating how to replace this part so I no longer need assistance.

On the front end of the rails, there should be plastic or rubber stoppers. Remove these and the rack should roll right off as if youre pulling it out to load it.

Looking for part # for replacement of upper dishrack assy which started getting very rusty. Thank you


Rack replacement have been pricey for me. I have used a Rerack Dishwasher repair rubber repair adhesive with lots of success. I wire brushed the affected area overlapping the current coating. I applied with several coats making sure to overlap the current coating

Where some of the vertical posts had broken off I resealed the rack. I Made sure the rack was good and dry before applying.

This rubber repair is available everywhere I found it at Ace.

It has been in place for over two years holding up very well.

Mod m.d.c.5100aww ser28126829ax I had a repairman come out. He said the "sprayers" are plugged. I'm on a fixed income. With my bills I can't afford to get it fixed. Trying to fix it myself. I...


Most dishwashers dispense the detergent via gravity and the sprayer arms spraying against the soap dispenser once the little door flips open during the wash cycle. Since it sounds like the soap door is opening I would look at the sprayer arms and make sure they are free of food particles or other debris that might be keeping them from rotating and spraying properly. Here are some instructions for performing this check.

Remove the lower dishrack from the unit. Reach into your dishwasher and spin the lower spray arm. Take note of whether or not the arm moves freely or if its movement is restricted. It should not be restricted in its path of motion. Now gently pull up on an end of the spray arm. The spray arm should be free to wobble up and down. Unscrew the arm retaining knob (some of these are left hand threads) and take the arm out for inspection and carefully examine the spray arm seams. If they have split or are damaged, the dishes may not receive the amount of water pressure required to fully clean the dishes or to rotate the arm properly. What’s more, if water is in fact spraying out of the spray arm from its seams, it is possible that it can cause your dishwasher to leak. Make sure there is no debris in any of the holes.

If your dishwasher has a spray tower, pull up on it as far as it will go and then let it fall back down. Again, this movement should not be restricted. It should be a fluid and smooth motion. Also, unscrew the spray tower and examine it for any debris or foreign objects. Remove any that you find.
Gain access to the upper spray arm by removing the upper dishrack. Perform the same tests for the upper spray arm as you just did for the lower spray arm. Keep in mind that the upper spray arm may not wobble as much as the lower spray arm.
On a final note, some dishwasher models have a water tube that meets up with the upper spray arm once the upper dishrack is pushed back. It is a good idea to check to make sure this tube is aligning properly with the upper spray arm and that this has not split or is damaged in any other way.

Upper wheel on a model 28-682 bandsaw. How do you adjust it.


With saw unpluged!!!!! open top wheel gaurd.Spin wheel by hand while moving the adjuster knob on back of the machine. As you turn both at the same time the blade will trac either the front or back of the wheel. Move the knob (while spinning the wheel) until the blade is tracking in the middle of the tire. (rubber strip around the wheel)

Bandsaw blade keeps coming off Rexon BS 10


Unplug the saw and take the covers off the wheels. See if any of them show excessive end play or deflections when gently racking them from side to side. You may need to shim the wheels. Ideally, you want them all to track in the same plane, and you can check this with a straightedge.
There should be a tracking thumbscrew locked with a wing nut or some such on the back of the upper wheel. Put the blade on so it rides in the center of the tire, (move the guides out of the way if need be until you get the blade to track correctly), and turn the wheel by hand to see how the blade rides. That way you can make adjustments before it pops all the way off. By moving the bolt on the back of that upper wheel in or out you adjust the pitch of that wheel and change the way the blade tracks...
After you get the blade tracking smoothly under tension, you can move the guides back into position to support your blade during cuts.

I have Kitchen Aid Dishwasher Model # KUDMOITJBLO. We began having trouble with the top rack coming out of the brackets on the upper rack track. Kitchen Aid sent me 4 parts # 8268785. The problem is...


I removed the tracks from inside the dishwasher.  Then I was able to carefully remove the endcaps (something I had not been able to do previously) carefully.  The existing broken wheels slid out and I slid two new brackets into each track.   If I attached the tracks to the rack first, I would not be able to clip them into place, so I first replaced the endcaps and then returned the tracks to their positions inside the dishwasher. Reattaching the upper rack is not difficult, but takes two people while I connected the left side, my assistant supported the rack on the right side.  I then connected the right side of the rack.  I slide the rack back and forth to macke sure that is worked smoothly.  We then loaded the dishwasher and washed our dishes as we had in the past.
